Our region is home to world-class natural areas and a diversity of wildlife.

We have some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Australia -  from rugged untouched coastline on the Bellarine, to wildflower infused grassland on the volcanic plain, to majestic open forest in the Brisbane Ranges. 

Although these precious ecosystems are just a taste of what Geelong has to offer, since European settlement, biodiversity has declined in the region primarily due to land clearing, weeds and pest animals. 

Join us as we explore the beauty of our natural areas and deliver conservation programs that protect our biodiversity for future generations.
